Staging area

This year saw the first official wheelchair race. I watched them wheel up to their start which was staged a half hour or so before the runner’s start.

The organizers trumpet that the staging area features the world’s longest urinal. There is a constant flow speeding into a holding tank that is subsequently pumped into a tanker truck standing by. Should have got a picture of that.

“Water, Agua,” she called, making sure runners got their water.

I found Fernando and Sean.

Here’s Keith, another person I've run a good deal with. A very quiet, reliable guy.

When it was time a group of us went to the Green Start area. Some of the guys got up on a concrete divider at the edge.
